9 Ways to Use Sunflower Seed Butter

Sunflower Seed Butter is one of the most versatile ingredients to have in your pantry, but it's anything but plain. Ours is lightly sweetened with Vermont Maple Sugar to give it a warmth and depth you just don't get with the roasted seeds alone. You can use it just ike you would use a nut butter -- in a Seed Butter & Jelly sandwich, in a smoothie, on yogurt, and even on ice cream. But you can also use it in these more inventive ways, like whipping it into a creamy sauce, baking it into cookies, or whisking it into soup! Yeah... soup.

Maple Mustard

Maple Mustard

Like any parent, we don’t choose favorites - we love all our sauces equally. But if we were forced to choose… we’d probably go with this maple mustard. Salty, sweet, and punchy. Thick, smooth, and spreadable. Maple mustard: you have our hearts and a reserved place in our fridge forever, especially when accompanied by a large soft pretzel and ice-cold Kolsch. Prost!

Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies

Our easy, allergy-friendly cookie recipe can be made with any flavor of seed butter, but plain ol' Sunflower is as classic as it gets. When they come out of the oven, they almost have the texture and taste of a peanut butter cookie, but without the nut -- crispy on the edges, chewy in the middle, and perfect for everyone.
